Arrived with another couple to spend a couple of days on a groupon deal. The main lounge and huge central staircase were a beautiful sight. The high ornate carved ceilings with huge chandeliers transformed you immediately to the Victoria. Age where you could imagine all the grand ladies with their fabulous gowns sweeping around the rooms and down the grand... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend and had an enjoyable stay. Yes the rooms and corridors could do with an update. However, this is an old hotel as its character shows. Our room was clean and comfortable, with everything provided for, tea, coffee etc. The food was lovely, hot, freshly cooked and plenty to go round. Everyone... More

My son and I stayed for two nights 27th and 28th June. We were on a coach holiday. After reading some of the negative reviews on here I was more apprehensive than anything else in the run up to this trip. On arrival we were very impressed with the impressive exterior and reception areas. We were very quickly checked in... More

Old hotel with character but weird rooms. Some below ground with no windows, rooms on 6+7 level small. Food needs to be up graded not always hot. Staff first rate. Well situated for exploring Scarborough by foot.

Booked a room via Brittania hotels website, pics looked ok. Arrived to find had to pay extra for parking, went to our room and someone was obviously using it. Reception confirmed that someone had been transferred from another hotel and were in our room. We were given another room which was dirty with various items on the floor including nail... More

Having only ever seen this hotel from the outside my husband and I were really looking forward to our one night stay last Saturday. Appearances can be so deceptive!! We were given the key to our room and told which lift to take and were both surprised when the lift went down from the Ground floor. This room was 3... More

There are so many scathing reviews about this hotel and the history it has is well noted. Having said this, it is my partners favourite hotel in all of England (and he's stayed in 4* hotels in London). We know what can happen so we had bottled water to brush our teeth with as a precaution! The hand sanitiser is... More

Dreadful place. Very imposing from outside but we were allocated rooms, one -2 which had no windows and was very hot and stuffy. We asked for a fan but that was so old it made such a lot of noise it kept us awake all night. Another member of our party was allocated a room 4 floors above us and... More
